One advantage of playing pedal steel is you get a good excuse to invest in a hip, cool pedal steel seat. Great for sitting on, storing your steel accessories (it opens up like a suitcase), impressing your bandmates, and one-upping the electric guitar player.
A back-side view of the seat situated in my practice area. I chose the color of the upholstery to be black, to match my ’98 Emmons LeGrande II. Billy Knowles made the seat for me in his shop on the day I purchased this steel from him.
